The Snake Plant is named due to its appearance; long dark green leaves with lighter bands. Also known as Mother-in-laws Tongue probably because of the sharp point to the leaves.
|Size||Up to 100cm|
|Light Strength||Bright light|
This plant is very slow growing but can reach a height of 60-100cm, therefore would be best kept in larger enclosures. The leaves are upright and taper to a point, these are dark green with lighter bands. When in bloom, multiple white fragrant flowers come from a tall stem.
The Snake plant is very tolerant to its surrounding conditions. It prefers bright light but can have some shading. Planting into a dry enclosure is best as it can store water in the leaves and roots. If using in a forest type setup, the soil shouldn’t be kept too damp.
